The hotel is with an 5 minute Uber ride from Downtown so it’s very convenient.

Mitchell at check-in was amazing! The hotel was clean and comfortable, though there's some visible wear and tear (there was a crack in the wall and a stain from a leak on the ceiling of my room). I appreciated the filtered water available in the fitness center and the free parking was much appreciated. I was surprised to find zero info about the hotel's restaurant and/or bar in my room, so I didn't end up eating or drinking there. But that was no problem, since the hotel is really conveniently located - just a short walk to Rainey Street - although after dark that frontage road and the surrounding block or two can definitely feel a bit sketchy. Nonetheless, I would happily stay here again.

The location was convenient to 6th street and Rainey Street.

Checking in took forever, the bathtub is rusting, staff wouldn't help me open a beer bottle, the coffee maker doesn't work

Awesome location. So close to downtown, State Capitol of Texas, the University of Texas, and Rainey Street. Beautiful view of Lady Bird Lake and only steps away from the trail that runs along the river. Very easy to get on and off Ih-35. We used the bicycle rental right outside the hotel front doors. Next time I would walk to Rainey Street and rent the electric bicycles.

The room was dirty. The mirrored door to bathroom was caked with dirt and fingerprints. There was only one bath towel and one of the pillows smelled of scalp. The woman at the front desk in the morning was very accommodating and refunded me for my stay. She thanked me for letting her know the condition of the room.

Breakfast was not included but free parking more than made up for it. Marissa's greeting was very warm and inviting!

The lake

The receptionists were great! Very friendly and helpful. The location is right off the highway but they parking situation is not that great. They have a handful of spots and also a parking garage. The spaces in the garage was very small. I have a regular 4 door sedan and it was a squeeze trying to fit. The room was decent for a night sleep. I did have to go back to the front office to request more towels as we only had 2 small hand towels provided. The rep provide it with ease so no big issue.The room wasn't the cleanest. We only stayed one night so I'd give it 3.5/5

I would of liked a better view. It's an older building, so the rooms are smaller and tight. But the room were very well renovated.

I loved that it was next to the lake! But front desk guy had an attitude all the time. Did not like that all it seemed like he hated his job.

I like the parking garage is nice but spaces are small
